A life saving Policy: Automatic Organ Donors
When i recently renewed my UK drivers licence, I was asked if I would also like to become an organ donor. I of course, ticked yes. It made me wonder why have I not been asked before? it was the first time I had really thought about it. I'm aware there are shortages for donors but.. why had I not been asked before?
MY IDEA: is for everyone to automatically become an organ donor unless stated otherwise in the UK and nations across the developed world.

There would be a huge rise in organ donors as im sure that people would have had the same response as me. "Well.. i Guess id never really thought about it!"
lives would be saved. suffering would fall and i think the idea is far from unworkable!
your thoughts? many thanks - davie
